The global lighting fixtures market size was valued at USD 132.43 billion in 2023. It is estimated to reach USD 185.46 billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 4.3% during the forecast period (2024–2032).
A light fixture or luminaire is an electrical instrument that contains and illuminates electric lighting. There is a fixture body and one or more lamps in every light fixture. The bulbs could be in sockets for simple replacement or hard-wired in the case of some LED fixtures. Moreover, fixtures may contain a lighting control switch linked to the lamp body or the power line. Certain permanent lighting fixtures, such as dining room chandeliers, rely on a wall switch rather than having a switch on the fixture itself.
Fixtures need to be connected to an electrical source of power, usually AC mains power, though some run-on batteries for camping or emergency illumination. Direct wiring is used for permanent lighting fixtures. A plug and wire into a wall socket are on portable lamps. Other elements of light fixtures include reflectors for light direction, apertures (with or without lenses), exterior shells or housings for lamp alignment and protection, electrical ballasts or power supplies, and shades to dilute the light or direct it toward a workspace (e.g., a desk lamp).
